Permanent Visa

◎Advantages of a Permanent Visa

  • No need to extend your visa.
  • No limit for work.
  • When your family subsequently applies for a permanent visa, there will be less requirements to obtain the visa.
  • It is easier for you to get a loan from bank or other financial institutions as you will have more credibility.
  • You might be able to remain in Japan with special permission if you did something which would usually require you to be deported.

△However, the following things will not be changed even after getting permanent visa.

  • The resident card is necessary.

Comparison between Permanent Visa and Naturalization

Naturalization has similar advantages to a permanent visa, but it will give you a more stable life in Japan, such as being granted the right to vote.

However, since Japanese are allowed to have only one nationality, you will be required give up your present nationality after naturalization.

This means permanent residency gives you more advantages than naturalization in some cases.

The required period of stay in Japan for naturalization is 5 years.

Regarding difficulties in the acquisition of naturalization and/or a permanent visa, the two can not be compared directly as they are situation-dependant.

"visa" and "resident status"

Although a word "visa"is generally used when you talk about your resident status, technically speaking visa and resident status are actually different systems.

However, we describe "resident status" using the word "visa" in stead of "resident status" on this website for easier understanding for most readers.
